(sirens wailing) (police radio chatter) grande skim latte, two pumps sugar-free vanilla. castle, i think you read my mind. (grunts) surgery? yeah. sometimes the scar pulls a bit. and you still don't remember anything about that day? no. it's a blank. (radio chatter continues) (officer speaks indistinctly (castle) thank you. wow. who knew cement overcoats would be back for fall? i need to chisel out the concrete by hand before i can autopsy, but it's pretty clear she was shot to death. (ryan) found these two slugs in the dirt. looks to be a 9-millimeter. guy was a pro. double tap. one in the back of the head, she falls, then he hits her again to make sure. buries her in the sand. and then waits for the cement truck to come in in the morning to finish off the job. execution-style murder, cement trucks-- can anyone else say mob hit? i'm looking at concrete evidence right here. is that purse from in here? yeah. according to her pearce college i.d., our victim's name is jane herzfeld.
